Turkey has accused Syria and Iran of backing Kurdish terrorist attacks on military outposts in the south-east of the country that left 30 dead.
Kurdish-dominated provinces in Turkey have been swept by an upsurge in attacks by the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) in recent weeks.
Ten soldiers and twenty PKK fighters were reported killed yesterday in overnight clashes in the town of Beytussebap in the Sirnak province of Turkey. It was the largest of four separate PKK attacks near the Syrian border.
In a separate incident, a suspected suicide bomber was shot dead by the security forces near Sanliurfa city.
The PKK has been at war with Ankara for thirty years and the conflict has claimed 45,000 lives. But recent fighting has been the worst for more than a decade and Turkish leaders have pointed the finger directly at President Bashar al-Assad.
